Armando Surratt to Miami

The talented point guard from Oakland, Armando Surratt, gets out of his National Letter of Intent with Fresno State and goes east...

Armando Surratt, 5-10 SR PG, Oakland (Calif.) Tech, will commit to Miami, according to sources.

Surratt signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Fresno State. When Jerry Tarkanian, then, resigned as head coach at Fresno, Surratt then petitioned to get out of his NLI, and was granted his release.

He took an official visit to Georgetown two weeks ago and Miami last weekend. He was planning on taking trips to Arkansas and Gonzaga, but the trips have been cancelled.

While it's well accepted that Surratt would have trouble qualifying, sources close to Surratt also said that he scored a qualifying 910 on the SAT and has maintained over a 3.3 for his senior year.
